For most of us, the weekend getaway is our savior. With careers and kids and friends and managing all the people and things important to us, taking a chunk of time to drop off the grid is tough, but we can always find a way to slip away for a few days to recharge and reset a few times a year.
Now comes the fun part: what are we wearing during our few days of freedom? If you are like us, a long weekend away is the perfect opportunity to bring our most favorite pieces with us and a chance to push our style a bit, so let’s get packing, shall we?!!!
Summer 2018 is all about embracing the heat in bold coral reds and delicious fresh stripes. Arrive at your weekend home away from home in our cool and comfortable Aloha Jumpsuit; it’s 100% cotton, so you will not be a wilted flower at the checkin desk after your trip but you will still be champagne-upon-arrival perfect with its tie-sleeve detail and bright, tropical print. Mahalo, indeed.
Next up is that all-important first night dinner and it is your time to shine after a power nap and a shower. Step out in our Andi Pant Set and turn heads all the way from pre-dinner cocktails to dinner to late night dancing. This set is incredibly suitcase-friendly (just hang it up on hangers near the shower and let the residual steam shake out any little creases while you clean up for the night) and touches back to this season’s emphasis on big stripes and eye-catching colors while being a classic, elegant silhouette. Pair with our Whitney Braided Tassel earrings to give an on-trend edge and make everyone stare at your gorgeous shoulders (let’s face it, having sexy shoulders is our ONLY motivation for ever doing a shoulder press at the gym).
Shake off those sleepy cobwebs the next morning with a quick walk in the sunshine and then breakfast in our Charleston Charm Maxi Dress. You’ll stay cool, fresh and oh-so appropriate with its high side slits and racerback styling. And the breezy and loose fit is just the thing after a late night of dancing and tropical libations while still looking like lady you are, even if your head and your feet disagree at the moment.
Spend the afternoon baking in the sun and get ready to turn up the heat for dinner tonight in our ruffle-iscious Lantana Dress Set. Featuring on-trend poppy red florals, the top is an eye catching (and incredibly packable) smocked cotton off the shoulder stunner. And the skirt, oh, the skirt. We are seriously crushing on this skirt with its high-low detail and scrumptious layers of ruffles and pleats. Embrace you inner flamenco dancer and roll up for a decadent and sultry evening in this muy muy caliente ensemble.
Ahhh, brunch, our favorite time of every week as we love anytime it is socially acceptable and encouraged to order a cocktail before noon. Our elegant-with-a-twist Playing the Field Maxi Dress is the perfect option with its v-shaped hem and adjustable halter styling with adjustable waist-tie detail. Stripes, florals and bright colors? All of this season’s highlights are right here and surprise! It’s backless for an unexpectedly flirty look. And if you are asking if it is ok to wear backless to brunch, the answer undeniably yes as the beverages are probably bottomless. It’s only fair, after all. And because you work hard and are pretty and deserve it, we are not letting you go home just because it is Sunday afternoon.
Enjoy your last night of vacation in our Paradise Found Dress, featuring a deep v-neckline and lace-up back detail with tie closure and celebrate the fact that you are not quite back to reality yet. This dress also features one-sided ruching and a side slit. Trust us, this is the perfect dress to close out your recharge weekend with a bang. You can thank us later (hint: we like lilies and orchids and good champagne).
Now, just because you are heading home does not mean the fun needs to end. Steal all of the shampoos and lotions and throw on our Delia Pant Set for your trip back to reality. Featuring on-trend stripes and a ruffle overlay top, you’ll look so good at checkout that they probably won’t even notice that fluffy robe you “borrowed” from the room sticking out of your weekender bag.
The best part? Even though your weekend is over, all of these pieces can be worn again and again in your hometown, whether it be heading to dinner with the family, running errands, a night out with the girls or a romantic evening with your sweetheart.
We promise, you will be in vacation mode long after the credit card bill arrives with such fun-loving and on-trend outfits announcing themselves every time you open your closet.
Happy packing and safe travels! We can’t wait to hear about your adventures.
